Oruã, a band born in the midst of the Brazilian parliamentary coup of 2016, blends the perfect mix of acid jazz, indie rock, and experimental psychedelic. With high-energy live performances that compliment their fine-art experimental arrangements, the band has proven to be a contemporary spearhead of new music frontiers.

Oruã also continues to stay true to the DIY ethic of band member and founder of Transfusão Noise Records, Lê Almeida, by continuing to create an authentic and unique aesthetic of self made, hand-cut concert flyers and cassette hissed recordings. The band had undergone huge transformations in 2018 & 2019 with a South American tour, and 70+ shows in Europe and North America supporting, backing, and recording with Built to Spill.

In more recent years and after multiple lineup changes, the band has gained huge momentum despite the limitations of the global pandemic. The band’s latest record, Íngreme, was written and molded during the band’s time with Built to Spill in 2019, and this record yielded a newer and more unique version of the band. In May, Oruã played alongside fellow Brazilian band, Boogarins, at Rio’s 2,200-cap venue, Circo Voador. The band also took on two separate US tours with various scattered dates for late summer and fall of 2022.
